OUR MISSION IS TO ELEVATE AND CHANGE THE NARRATIVE
THROUGH KNOWLEDGE TO END SYSTEMIC RACISM AND DISENFRANCHISEMENT
As a sustainable brand owned by a Queer Afro-Latina, we're vocal on racism existing within sustainable fashion and around the world. Sustainable brands priding themselves to conserving the world are ignoring the voices of BIPOC while continuing the cycle of the white savior coming to save the melanin communities. Consumers are the driving force to demand transparency from sustainable brands who are choosing to stay silent or jumping on the trend by supporting businesses who are walking the talk and the driving force to end White Supremacy, social injustice, and oppression of the BIPOC community - from the very beginning. Fighting racism is not a trend when our lives and businesses are in imperial.
We've created an extensive resource just for you or for anyone who wants to educate themselves on the real history of systemic racism in America. Becoming an Ally takes proactive and inspirational actions when facing racism and discrimination against any human being - you can start with this guide by clicking on any title and a pop-up below with educational data to learn more.
Let's start by normalizing and seeing the beauty in becoming COMFORTABLE WITH UNLEARNING to evolve in life.

It couldn't be anymore clearer than this!
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; NOR DENY TO ANY PERSON within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Under this amendment we have the right to criticize our government when it fails all if its people, protest on the streets, submit any petitions to the government regarding our reasoning of decent and allow the gov't to make right a wrong.
The federal, state or local government may not restrict or censor your speech if its taking place on your property, public property, likely in front of government buildings as long as you're not interrupting the design purpose of the building, you may not obstruct car nor pedestrian traffic. You have the right to march on the sidewalks, streets with proper permits, if you don't have one police officers may ask you to move to the sidewalk or the side of the street for safety reasons but can't arrest for exercising your rights, nor tell you to stop recording, or handover any recordings or pictures without a proper warrant.
What to do if you're stopped by the police while protesting:
- Stay calm. Make sure to keep your hands visible. Don’t argue, resist, or obstruct the police, even if you believe they are violating your rights. Point out that you are not disrupting anyone else’s activity and that the First Amendment protects your actions.
- Ask if you are free to leave. If the officer says yes, calmly walk away.If you are under arrest, you have a right to ask why. Otherwise, say you wish to remain silent and ask for a lawyer immediately.
- Don’t say anything or sign anything without a lawyer.
- You have the right to make a local phone call, and if you’re calling your lawyer, police are not allowed to listen.
- You never have to consent to a search of yourself or your belongings. If you do explicitly consent, it can affect you later in court.
- Police may “pat down” your clothing if they suspect you have a weapon and may search you after an arrest.
- Police officers may not confiscate or demand to view your photographs or video without a warrant, nor may they delete data under any circumstances. However, they may order citizens to cease activities that are truly interfering with legitimate law enforcement operations.
What to do if police violate your rights:
- Take pictures and videos at the time of occurrence
- Photograph any injuries
- Obtain contact information of any witnesses
- Write down everything you remember, police officers badges, patrol car numbers, and the agency they work for.
- Once you have all this crucial information click on Report Police Misconduct tab to file a report with Department of Justice and FBI to open an investigation
What's Protected under Freedom of Speech:
- Not to speak (specifically, the right not to salute the flag). West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943).
- Of students to wear black armbands to school to protest a war (“Students do not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate.”). Tinker v. Des Moines, 393 U.S. 503 (1969).
- To use certain offensive words and phrases to convey political messages. Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971).
- To contribute money (under certain circumstances) to political campaigns. Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1 (1976).
- To advertise commercial products and professional services (with some restrictions). Virginia Board of Pharmacy v. Virginia Consumer Council, 425 U.S. 748 (1976); Bates v. State Bar of Arizona, 433 U.S. 350 (1977).

No government or person has the right to discriminate anyone for their race, sex, gender orientation, physical abilities or color for the sole reason- it's written in the US Constitution and it's morally wrong. Amendment 14 is one of the most important text in the Constitution before any other.
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
Not only does it protect us but it prohibits any insurrection against the United States by holding civilians, any government officials (Presidents, Judges, Police Officers, Senators, Mayors, Governors, House Representatives, Military, ie.,) accountable.
Thanks to the 14th two landmark acts were passed the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and Voting Rights Acts of 1965.
If your state is violating your 14th Amendment, please CLICK HERE to Submit A Report to the DOJ to start a Civil Rights investigation.
Learn what's protected and not protected under the 14th Amendment
One of the most powerful articles written to protect the rights of all humans. It's self-evident to prevalent times to serve as reminder when the government, elected officials and institutions fail to provide equality, protection under the law and prove to be destructive - we the people hold the sole power to alter it or abolish it to form a new government that's inclusive and that shall not deprive or cause suffrage to any living being in the USA. Learn it and memorize it.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security..."
Declaration of Independence ˿
As Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in the case of Reno v. Flores in 1993, "it is well established that the Fifth Amendment entitles aliens to due process of law in deportation proceedings.”
The first misconception that non-citizens (undocumented or documented) aren't entitled to constitutionals rights in the U.S., couldn't be further from the truth. Within the Constitution the term "person" or people" are used instead of "citizen" which means those laws apply to every human within the US soil.
The second misconception is that non-citizens pay zero in taxes. In a 2019 report from the Institution on New American Economy reported non-citizens paid over $492.4 billion and undocumented non-citizens paid over $30.6 billion in federal, state and local taxes. Recognizing their spending power is crucial to the US economy funds our healthcare, education, police force, fire department, military and other public services. Overstating the importance undocumented non-citizens don't qualify and will never receive social security, medicaid, medicare, welfare.
The third misconception non-citizens (undocumented or documented) are criminals. In a 2021 report from the United States Sentencing Commission reported 53.8% federal offenders were committed by U.S. Citizens and "Most noncitizen offenders committed an immigration offense (80.7% of non-citizens), while citizens most commonly committed a drug trafficking offense (37.8% of citizens)."
The last misconception non-citizens (undocumented or documented) are lazy and stealing our jobs. Not only is this statement egregious but not factual by all accounts. According to a 2020 report from the U.S. Bureau Labor of Statistics- foreign workers only account for 17.4% of the workforce in the US. Millions of businesses are funded and started by non-citizens, restoring communities through job creations, employing locals at far higher rates compared to the U.S. population overall. "Today, millions of American workers are employed at immigrant-founded and immigrant-owned companies" per the Institution on New American Economy. A total of 3.24 million non-citizen are entrepreneurs which generates $88.5 billion in the U.S. economy.
Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886)
The Court said that unequal application of a law violated the rights of a Chinese immigrant by challenging the 14th Amendment and Equal Protection Clause.
Plyler v. Doe
Equal Protection Clause protects undocumented non-citizen children may attend and receive an education in the U.S.
Taking it to the streets is protected by our 1st Amendment, click here to join a protest in your community.
